Welcome to our School Council page
School Council at Great Binfields
At Great Binfields we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in School Council meetings. This is so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them. Through their class reps, all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues and share ideas that are then taken back to a school council meeting. This ensures that as many pupil voices as possible are heard. Pupils at Great Binfields know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter.
Becoming part of our school council gives children the chance to develop some leadership skills. Each year we teach the children about democracy (one of the four British Values) and then complete class votes to choose our councillors. This is a fun process, which helps the children to understand the way that Britain is led and gives them an opportunity to complete a verbal presentation to their peers explaining why they think they would be good at the job. They meet regularly to discuss school issues, facilitated by Mrs Franklin.
